Playing the best of British. Now Playing on Union JACK


David Bowie

Think you're funny?


Union JACK Radio, described as ‘the DAVE of radio’, is on the lookout for original, funny, entertaining and unconventional radio ideas.

Forget your ‘topical sketch shows’ and your generic panel shows – think outside the box.

Imagine the creativity of a podcast, on the platform of a national radio station. That’s us.

Get a flavour of our line-up of shows.



At the moment, we have an award-winning new music show hosted by a presenter who knows nothing about new music (Underdogs); live stand up comedy from one of the top five comedy venues in the UK (One Night Stand); and Pundays, where we ditch Mondays and have listeners punning all day long!

Plus, lots more in the pipeline.

So if you’ve got an idea that’s creative, funny, and different – let us know! Union JACK is the antidote to boring, bland commercial radio.

Come along for the ride!
